RCMP provide more details on incident in Campbellton

The RCMP has provided an update on a home invasion, vehicle crash, arson and a sudden death which took place in Campbellton last weekend.

Back on Saturday police received a report of a home invasion that occurred at a residence on Route 340 in Campbellton and a single-vehicle crash that had occurred near the residence, shortly before the home invasion.

A man knocked on the door of the home, which was answered, and then forced his way inside and assaulted an occupant. The victim ran from the residence for help and returned to discover that the upper level of the home, as well as a vehicle parked in the driveway, were on fire.

Firefighters extinguished both blazes and found a deceased man, who was not a resident of the home, inside a room on the upper level of the house.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner says the 40-year-old deceased man, who was located in the residence and died as a result of the fire, was found to have been the only person responsible for these crimes, including the preceding motor vehicle crash, the home invasion and the arson to both the home and a vehicle that was parked in the driveway.
